Halifax coach Karl Harrison says he “looking at all options” as his side look to break their losing streak against Doncaster at the Shay on Sunday (3.0).

Back to back losses at Leigh and Doncaster have dropped Fax to fourth on the league ladder and piled the pressure on Harrison and his players.

Now Harrison is looking for the right formula to get his side back on track.

“We’ve looked at everything,” said Harrison.

“We’d tried to make some changes to our game over the last couple of weeks with one eye on the play offs and maybe we tried to do too much, too quickly, which is our fault as coaches.

“It might be a case of going back to what was working well for us earlier in the year.”

Harrison’s root-and-branch analysis has extended to team selection, with long-term absentee Mick Nanyn, who has played 40 minutes for the club in two injury-wrecked seasons, one option under consideration.

Nanyn, a prolific try and goal scorer throughout his career, has played a handful of games on loan at Swinton after finally recovering from a knee reconstruction.

“We’ve talked about Mick and I’ve spoken to him,” said Harrison, who expects to have hooker or loose forward Craig Ashall and full back Ryan Fieldhouse available.

“Maybe it’s still too soon for him, but he could certainly be an option for us before the end of the year.”
